I think you are out of luck with this. You can try upgrading the RAM, but I believe you will still be disappointed. Vista requires a huge amount of hardware resources and many drivers are not available yet.

Install Windows XP or try one of the Linux distributions. I prefer Fedora Core myself, but for many, Ubuntu is an excellent choice.

I HAVE ACER ASPIRE 4530 LAPTOB AND VISTA OS BUT COPROCESSOR DRIVER HAS BEEN DAMAGED AND SYSTEM WORK VERY SLOW WHAT CAN I DO? HOW CAN I UPGRADE WINDOWS OR REPAIR


In order to repair your windows you will need to use support windows DVD which ships along with your laptop. put that DVD in and reboot the laptop. but first you will have to configure your boot priority to DVD first here is how you can do that http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/ss/bootorderchange.htm then next when that DVD boots up it, will ask you for complete new installation or repair windows. you can choose from there
i hope this helps!

I tried to upgrade my acer t180 to windows 7 from vista basic, no i"m having dmi problems... seems like it's stuck... help please


Hello kelajo34,

There might be a Desktop Management Interface (DMI) compatibility problem with Windows 7 and the Acer T180 Vista Basic DMI. The Acer support Windows 7 eligible systems link shows all the Acer computers that are fully compatible with windows 7. (Acer T180 is NOT in this list !):
http://www.acer.com/windows7upgrade/eligible.html

Also, It might be a good idea to run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor before upgrading from vista basic to Windows 7 on the Acer T180. The Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor download link is at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1b544e90-7659-4bd9-9e51-2497c146af15&displaylang=en

Have a great day,

Trouble after RAM upgrade


sounds more like a compatibility issue with the new ram. Take it or send it back and get a different brand. Or better yet was it running bad to begin with, before them ram upgrade? If so you prolly loaded down with adware and spyware, possibly even a virus. I would suggest doing some good maintenance if thats the case.

How to Upgrade to max RAM


The Acer Aspire One can be upgraded to a total RAM of 2Gigs. This will allow for you to upgrade to Windows XP Pro and also to Microsoft Office 2003 as there is no version of Office Professional. If you would like more specifics on your particular model, please look here. http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptops/acer-aspire-one-10-inch.aspx?page=3

Upgrading RAM is a fairly simple process. As this is a fairly compact laptop in design, you will have to upgrade to a new 2Gig RAM module and basically discard (or sell) the one you end up removing. In order to find out the type of RAM you'll need, remove the cover as show in the picture and the info for the existing RAM should be written on it.

Good luck!

My laptop is very slow...


1st off - do a restore on the computer to bring it back to factory settings. This will clean it up and speed it up as well. 2nd you need more ram . Ram is very cheap and Vista needs lots of ram to run.
Thishis should solve your problem. Total cost to you is about $50.00

My acer aspire 3694 wlmi is really slow. i have got very little stored so dont know why


you may need to give it a system clean up, go to the link below for CCleaner, it's free, no spyware and free updates.

http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

You may also need click on the startup section in ccleaner menu and remove any programmes you don't need to run on startup, and you may also have a virus or spyware, if you don't have antivirus programme, install AVG 8 free Edition from the link below, again free and no spyware, free updates and run it.

Acer Aspire E560 Home Basic Vista 512mb


yes, that's why with new computers, it comes with high ram.

In any case, try to clean out your C: do a disk clean up.
remove useless software. Don't archive for faster search (slow computer down)

Missing Vista home basic product number


Acer gives you the option to create your own cd's. Click the start button & go to all programs. Look through the programs installed. Someting like DVD pro. or nero. There is a program in there so you can creat your own set of restore cd's. The reason your PC is so slow is because Acer loaded the system up with a ton a junk you'll never use. (Can always return it). I would befor the warranty runs out.........

Good Luck!
